Tuesday, June 21, 2011 Discount Tee Times

My husband actually told me about this website. According to their website: "GolfNow offers a complete listing of golf courses across the US, many with online discount tee times."
It's very easy to search for and book the tee time you want. It's handy too that they list the price for each tee time so you know the cost right up front and also how much savings (if any) you'll get by booking a specific time.
For example: I searched for tee times at Quail Heights Country Club in Lake City on Wednesday, June 22nd- the 1:20pm tee time is $16/person. I then checked with the Quail Heights official website and they have a 1:15pm tee time listed for $38.
So, by using, you get basically the same tee time for half price!

Product Review: "Gracie Jo's Candles" Soy Tart for Warmers

I love it when my house smells great so, naturally, I love candles. So I was excited to receive a sample from Gracie Jo's Candles online store. Gracie Jo's has a very large variety of fragrant items including candles, tarts for warmers, sprays and air fresheners. She also has gift baskets, bath and body products and candle parties.
The sample I received is a Fluted Soy Tart for Warmers (pictured). The scent is April Fresh Downy.
Let me just say that the fragrance is strong. I could smell it while the tart was inside the plastic baggie. The scent is listed on the website as "Exceptionally soft, fresh, and static-free. This fragrance will make you think you just washed your sheets every day of the week! A manufactured dupe of the original fragrance."
In my opinion, it has a very strong floral scent. I'm not a fan of floral scents in particular, so this would not be my first choice, but I will say that the fragrance did fill the house. So, if it were something more up my alley, like a fruity scent, then I would be thrilled.
Gracie Jo's website also has a monthly giveaway for members. All you do to become a member is fill out a short form and sign up for her newsletter. The giveaway for July features over 1 pound of scented tarts including:
-20 Soy Chunks
-20 Soy Drops
-20 Prim Stars
-20 Baby Shoe Tarts
-1 -5 oz. Break Away Tart Bar
The winner gets to choose 5 different scents for each variety of tart.
This giveaway ends July 10th.

Product Review: Piggy Paint nail polish

"Natural as mud." That's the claim made by Piggy Paint nail polish.

A nail polish originally developed for kids by mommy, Melanie Hurley, it contains no formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, biphenyl A, ethyl acetate or acetone like other "kid" polishes do!

The idea for this natural, water-based nail polish was born after Melanie was polishing her girls' nails over a foam plate one day. Some of the solvent-based polish dripped onto the plate and started eating through it! (click here to see a picture of the foam plate)

Imagine all those chemicals going into your kid's system every time they put their fingers in their mouth (which we parents know is ALL the time!) This was my main reason for researching a "safe" kid polish and that is how I discovered Piggy Paint.

Imagine my surprise and excitement when last week I found out I WON a Piggy Paint gift set from a giveaway that I entered on Baby Loves Disco's facebook!

Well today, I received that gift set in the mail (pictured) and of course I had to try it out right away! As soon as I got it out of the box, my daughter, Allie, started reaching for it saying "please, please" as if she knew it was for her!

I have never painted her nails before so I wasn't sure what to expect (she'll be 2 at the end of June). So, I sat her in her high chair and told her to lay her hand flat. She did so well. She held her hand flat the entire time I painted her little fingernails. I told her to leave her hand flat while it dried which did not take long at all, 60 seconds maybe.

Here is the right hand freshly painted:

The color that I applied is called Girls Rule! It's a dark pink with silver shimmer. I'd use it on myself! All the names in the Piggy Paint collection are darling. The other two that were in my gift set are Angel Kisses (pink) and Glass Slipper (clear with glitter). The name of the gift set itself is Lollipops and Gumdrops. So cute!

Piggy Paint has 2 other nail polish lines. Refined is their adult collection with more sophisticated colors. Project Earth is a line directed towards tweens with neon colors.

The other great thing (that my husband loved most) is that Piggy Paint has NO ODOR! You can definitely breathe easy knowing you're using a safe, non-toxic, non-flammable nail polish on your kids and yourself! I HIGHLY recommend trying Piggy Paint! I am one very satisfied customer!
Make that TWO satisfied customers!

Product Review: Picture Keeper

How many photos do you currently have on your hard drive that are not backed up? If you're like me, you have thousands! At a moment's notice your computer could crash and leave those thousands of priceless memories lost.
If you've put off backing up your photos because of the hassle of trying to figure out HOW (like me), this product is for you! My mom gave me the Picture Keeper as a gift and it is simply amazing! On the package it says "Simply Plug & Save!" and they truly mean it. There is NO software to download. You literally just plug it in your USB port and it automatically saves all the pictures on your computer to the flash drive!
Within minutes, all 3000+ of my pictures were SAFE! That is a good feeling!
They have different capacities you can choose from. Picture Keeper 4 (or PK-4) will hold up to 4,000 pictures, PK-8 will hold up to 8,000 and PK-16 will hold up to 16,000 pictures!
If you want to know more details about the Picture Keeper, please go to their website,
